Salt Lake City Reviews

I stayed in Salt Lake City after graduating college for a number of reasons. I love the small city feel that doesn't have too much traffic (unlike so many other big cities) but that still lets you experience the perks of living in a city. So many touring shows and cultural experiences travel through SLC still, and I love the arts, so that's important to me. We get all 4 seasons every year. The skiing is the best in the world. The UofU is a great school on so many levels. The job opportunities are everywhere. The housing is very affordable compared to other U.S. cities. And it's really clean, even downtown!

I love Salt Lake City! For it being the capital city of the state of Utah, the streets are rather clean compared to other major cities. It is the perfect location as well, you are within a few hours of national parks like Zions and Arches. We are also snuggled up against the mountain and there is multiple ski resorts within the area. UTA is fantastic for public transportation as well, and the grid system of our streets makes finding your way around easier.
Salt Lake City is a fun and lively city. It is full of diversity and curiosity. I went walking down Main Street to this quaint little book store and it was just beautiful. I love the artwork all around the city; there are many walls and painted murals of striking pictures and colors. There are many sculptures out and about that you can catch outside. It has a entertaining night life as well. Sky bar in downtown Salt Lake city, where they play local DJ's as well as bigger names. If you're craving a loud and musical time, either of the two piano bars are tons of fun! There is Keys on Main, right on Main Street. There is also the Tavernacle! Just off of 400 s.
